Unfortunately, we did not meet our goal on Kickstarter. We only reached $7,490 out of our $15,000 goal with 123 backers. This was our first crowdfunding campaign and we definitely learned many valuable lessons not only about product design and development, but also about the impact of PR and targeting the right niche.
No worries though, we plan to re-launch in the coming months. We will take a step back and redesign our D.Bug Kit that will appeal to a larger audience. We also plan to dig deeper into identifying the niche of enthusiasts who love D.Bugs. We met many of you at Maker Faire and through our campaign, and we will keep you posted on our progress!
Our Kickstarter page can still be found here. Please stay tuned for more information later this year.
